Verdict

Many possibilities in a typically competitive renewal of this Grade 3 handicap. MARIO DE PAIL looked promising prior to finding the Supreme Novices' Hurdle too much at Cheltenham when last seen in March and, with improvement likely now pitched into a handicap, he could be the answer. Tea Clipper and Fix Sun are also on the shortlist.

  1. MARIO DE PAIL (FR)
  2. TEA CLIPPER (IRE)
  3. FIX SUN (FR)
